Our work through the Regional Transportation Plan is intended to create a long-term, cohesive approach to regional transportation.  

To achieve this, we need to work together, cultivating new and existing partnerships and building solid long-lasting relationships locally, regionally, and nationally. Collaboration is one of the principles of the JRTA, and collaborative decision-making will be critical to the success of the JRTA and the development and implementation of the Regional Transportation Plan.   

We’ll continue to foster partnerships and build relationships with other municipalities and the broader community. We want to create open lines of communication so that diverse perspectives are shared, heard and included in the development of the Regional Transportation Plan.
